Drivers showcase their talent in the eNASCAR Pro Series
The eNASCAR Pro Series is proving to be a go-to entertainment. In this trying time, both races at virtual Homestead and Texas have proven to be great racing. Not just for the top stars of the NASCAR Cup Series, as smaller teams and their drivers are able to showcase their talent when given the same set-up as champion winning drivers. Kyle Busch was able to grasp a top-10 finish in the Texas event, but iRacing remains a new situation for Busch, among others like Jimmie Johnson. Nonetheless, this series has been a hit, and it could continue to be in a time without the real thing happening.
Timmy Hill is legit
After a strong top-five run in the inaugural race at Homestead-Miami, Timmy Hill proved himself by outperforming some of iRacing’s most proven drivers. Hill took his number 66 car to victory lane at Texas. Timmy is one of the most experienced iRacers in the field of 30-plus cup drivers. On the real track, he doesn’t quite have the power to contend, but nonetheless he is proving he has the racing talent to compete in the cup series. He wouldn’t be in the cup series if he didn’t have some kind of talent. What could he do if in top-level equipment? Hill could be a strong contender for the rest of the iRacing Pro Series schedule.
Garret Smithley could surprise
Smithley, like Hill, has plenty of iRacing experience in his career. With only 20 career starts in a real NASCAR Cup Series car, it’s far to early to make a judgment on his career. Still, he has proven thus far in the eNASCAR Pro Series that he can hang around the best when on the same set-up. Back-to-back top-five finishes, could make him a threat this Sunday when they visit the Virtual Bristol Motor Speedway.
Tune in this Sunday to FOX and FOX Sports 1 for the eNASCAR Pro Series race at the virtual Bristol Motor Speedway, we could see a third different winner. Bristol has been known for dramatic races, and this short track even in the virtual world should be exciting.
